Meep hatchlings are incredibly high strung, timid creatures. Upon hatching they will stay very near their magi, refusing to venture into open space until they are absolute sure it is safe. They also react oddly to various objects, as though they are seeing aspects of it that humans cannot. They love bright objects and anything colorful, and will often attempt to eat colorful things even if the thing they want to eat isn't food or even natural. Meep hatchlings have even attempted to eat paintings.

Meeps are small, flightless birds that by all rights shouldn't survive well in the wild. They tend to be colorful, their feathers quickly acquiring their hue from the flower petals they eat, and their color gives them no chance of blending in with their surroundings. Even the white and black varieties have feathers that are deeper and richer in color than others. They even have a strange, sweet smell, like marshmallow, making them appetizing to animals that wouldn't ordinarily hunt them. Meeps also have a very poor sense of smell and even worse hearing, not reacting to obvious sounds. However, they make up for all of this with amazing speed and even more amazing vision. A meep can locate a single flower petal at the bottom of a pile of leaves with no effort. They can find the single fresh blade of grass in a field within seconds. With one glance at the sky, they can see if the tiny dot of a bird overhead is a harmless gull or a dangerous predator. With this ability, predators have a nearly impossible time sneaking up on them, and their speed makes them hard to catch. Meeps breed in spring, and with very few predators skilled enough to thin their numbers, come warm weather the fields and forests become filled with colorful little birds.
